5″ Mezzaluna Knife
Home cooks use the Mezzaluna knife less frequently, but it has long been popular in professional kitchens. Traditionally, it has been used for chopping and mincing herbs or smaller amounts of ingredients because it imitates the rocking motion and speedy precision of a traditional chef’s knife.
To use a Mezzaluna, place your hands on both handles and move it in a rocking motion back and forth on a cutting board. The chopping and mincing is practically done before you’ve even begun! The knife completes chopping and mincing quickly and efficiently. The Mezzaluna is also an incredibly safe tool to use as your fingers are always at a safe distance from the blade and there is no need to hold the herbs or ingredients in place while using it.
